Al-Andalus and Mozarabs
Jun, Tomáš ; Hošek, Pavel (advisor) ; Heryán, Ladislav (referee)
In my thesis I deal with the question whether we can consider the social system of al-Andalus as religiously tolerant. I represent al-Andalus, the Iberian state, dominated by Muslims of Arab and Berber origin between 711-1492. I focus on the reign of the Umayyad dynasty from the 8th to 10th century called "Golden Age". I want to show on Mozarabes ("arabized Christians"), that the present view of tolerance in al-Andalus is distorted by its own history of myth. I also deal with reference to al-Andalus in the present, both among Christians and Muslims. Powered by TCPDF (

Marčík, Pavel ; Jirman, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Heryán, Ladislav (referee)
The work is based on experience from social work with orphans which is realized by NGO Letní dům, which organizes social rehabilitation camps for orphans. Part of the settings of these camps is a specially arranged room (called Chýška), where all camp participants meet every evening to reflect on the day passed. The author of the work considers this space holy for them. Holiness is not necessary connected here with religious or with moral category. It is connected with transcendental reality, which differentiates between ordinary and extra-ordinary or holy. The paradox is that these differences manifests the original reality. This reality is in everything that was created. It is without any deffirence. It is unity. A part of the work is introduction to the psychological theory of attachement, affective deprivation, Pesso-Boyden system psychomotoric therapy and factors which influence the group therapy. These chapters are included in the work for better understanding of orphan problems. Practical part of work is a description of Chýška and the camps. Second practical part of work is a reflection of Chýška by participants of the camps by means of half structured talks. Powered by TCPDF (
